All aboard! Rondo Shuttle Bus and Story Ride travels in between festival sites in the Rondo neighborhood: Hallie Q. Brown Community Center and Rondo Community Library.
Along the way, listen as storied community members tell tales of historic Rondo and the neighborhood’s vibrant present, including historic Black churches, contemporary organizations, community gardens and the Rondo Commemorative Plaza.
Ride along and learn!
Two routes run each festival night:
- 10 minute “express” bus between Hallie Q. Brown and Rondo Community Library with no tour guides
- 30 minute tour (approx.) between Hallie Q. Brown and Rondo Community Library featuring different storytellers throughout each festival night. Each leg (north to south, south to north) has a different route and landmarks.
Pick up and drop off at Rondo Community Library is the curb cut on Dale St in front of the Library entrance.
Pick up and drop off at Hallie Q. Brown is in front of the building near the parking lot.
Rondo Bus Tour is sponsored by Minnesota Historical Society.
